Wearable Toys that Teach Kids to Code


Imagine. Make. Play.

Linkitz is a new kind of wearable made just for kids. Linkitz is modular -- every link is a little electronic toy with its own behavior that kids can play with right out of the box. No mobile device or cell phone contract is needed!

What makes Linkitz different is that the links snap together, allowing kids to create their own wearable that can do anything -- sparkle when a friend is near, send secret messages, or chime along with a hand-clapping game. Swap links in and out to create something new. The possibilities are endless!

Linkitz is designed for kids and doesn't require any knowledge of programming, but Linkitz comes with a kid-friendly visual programming language that lets kids change how their links behave. Instead of "teaching" programming, Linkitz believes in giving kids age-appropriate programming tools and a great reason to use them!

We've been working on bringing Linkitz to life for two years, and we are getting closer every day. Watch for news coming soon!  We can't wait to get Linkitz to you!
